This is certainly one thing upon which you and I totally agree, Beds. We're so sure of our 'facts' that it's difficult to have an open mind. And then the insults get hurled, grudges developed and held, and the original purpose of the site - sharing our passion for watches - becomes obscured. While I can't speak for Anthony, I can say that, for myself, the ubiquitous poli-sci (or, more accurately, poly sigh) exchanges have tarnished much of the joy and pride of membership that I've experienced in being a WatchLord. And the 'particle physics posse' is having largely the same effect, 'free speech' or no. I rather like physics - I was a pilot for the better part of my 26-year USN career, after all - but, like it or not, this is a watch site.

Nope, not at all, AJC; as Falstaff sez above, hop on in and join the phun...we at WL all have what could best be described as an 'unusual' form of camaraderie here. Our often-wordy exchanges aren't meant to wound or even irritate one another, but are rather the norm in a degenerate-yet-highly-intelligent group like this. No one really takes it personally, and at the end of the day, we all remain friends in an oddly collegial environment.

Oh, s'cuse me for a sec...

[In a Raised Voice] [color=brown]"Hey, Honey? Honey! Hey, have you seen my 'Falstaff VooDoo Doll'? I can't seem to find the bloodydamned thing anywhere...yes, I did check the mulch bin, and it's not there. Now why would I throw it at Sprinkles
[the neighbor's cat]? Oh. Thanks, honey; I will check with 'Conjurer's House of Non-Infectious Companion Primates.'

Ahem...sorry 'bout that little interruption there, AJC; you gotta check these things when you think of 'em, lest you forget to mention them altogether. At any rate, as I was saying...[/color] Image
